Next Media Animation takes a look back and the life and career of Appleco-founder and chief executive Steve Jobs, who resigned that positionlate on Wednesday.
Our tale begins with Steve Jobs dabbling in LSD and spiritualenlightenment, which Jobs describes as the “one of the two or three mostimportant things [he had] done in [his] life”. Man, look at all thecolors. Hey, that gives me an idea for a company logo.
Jobs would then found Apple with Steve Wozniak and a third guy whocashed out his shares waaaaaay too early, so we didn’t bother to animatehim. In 1984, Jobs unveiled the Macintosh and forever
revolutionized personal computing.
But the good times wouldn’t last. John Sculley, the executive Jobs hiredaway from Pepsi, bounced Jobs from the company he founded.
Jobs would get his revenge by starting another company, Pixar. Heproduced ‘Toy Story’ and sold the animation company to Disney for a fatprofit.
Jobs finally returned to Apple and defeated arch nemesis Bill Gates tobecome the baddest mofo in tech. Jobs was then diagnosed with pancreaticcancer and required a live-saving liver transplant.
Apple now faces a threat from Google Android. Thankfully, Jobs can pass the baton to chief operating officer Tim Cook.
